Tour description

The Panoramaweg is an inviting, 27.6 km long path along the flank of the Pfannenstil, perfect for walks and hikes to enjoy the view.

It has good connections with various bus lines and is thus ideal for short or long rambles along the edge of the slope. You can return to your starting point on a bus, the train or one of the Lake Zurich boats.

All along the Panoramaweg can be found numerous viewpoints, giving you magnificent views of the lake and the Alps. You'll cross charming wooded ravines with a diversity of flora and fauna. Along the way you'll find protected cultural and geological objects that give you a glimpse of the Middle Ages or the last ice age. Numerous restaurants at excellent outlook points along the way will tempt you to stay a while.


Variante A: Along the street.
Variante B: As the hiking path enjoys excellent connections to bus lines, it is perfect for short walks.
